Compiling KeeperRL on Windows

Download Msys2 from http://www.msys2.org/
Run the installer, it should open the msys2 console when finished, if not run it from the start menu.
Update the package database and core system packages by typing this in the console:
pacman -Syu
Close the console when it tells you to and start it again from the start menu. Choose the 32-bit version.
(we will compile the 32-bit version of KeeperRL, the game works the same regardless if it’s 32 or 64-bit)
Type this in the console:
pacman -Su
Now your Msys2 installation is ready and we can get it to compile KeeperRL.
Start with installing git:

pacman -S git

Now you can download KeeperRL’s source code:

git clone https://github.com/miki151/keeperrl.git

The following commands will install the compiler and necessary libraries:

pacman -S make
pacman -S mingw-w64-i686-gcc
pacman -S mingw-w64-i686-SDL2
pacman -S mingw-w64-i686-SDL2_image
pacman -S mingw-w64-i686-curl
pacman -S mingw-w64-i686-openal
pacman -S mingw-w64-i686-pkg-config
pacman -S mingw-w64-i686-libvorbis

Now you can compile KeeperRL:

cd keeperrl
make -f Makefile-win -j4 DEBUG=true OPT=true RELEASE=true

If the command above doesn’t end with an error (warnings are ok), then KeeperRL should be built. Try running it with:

./keeper.exe

 PLAYERS SAID

There are no other games out there like KeeperRL. The game is a unique mixture of management, levelling, crafting, constructing, exploring, adventure etc. […] The possibility of interacting with other’s players monumental dungeons turn KeeperRL into one of the most promising games I’ve found.

This game is amazing! It’s challenging, fun, unique, and exactly what you might expect it to be. For an early access game it’s incredible. And the thought that there’s more to come thrills me! I can’t wait to see how this awesome game will develop even more.

Any time I touch another race, I get bent over like a cheap, overworked sex worker. I love sucking at this game so much.
